In fairness I have to say that what seems to be some sort of high-concept attempt to show man's place in the universe turns out instead to be a second rate collection of old SF pulp illustrations, NASA publicity shots, badly implemented two-page spreads and Star Trek. Lots of Star Trek. (Starbrite) "They've landed! They've landed!" With the initial panic over, the burning question is, "Where did They come from?" The authors of Alien Creatures now take you on an incredible...

Neither Romanesque nor Gothic, nor indeed Transitional, this exciting style is an important artistic manifestation in its own right, a fact recognized up to now by a relatively small group of historians. We hope that this distinguished exhibition itself will become one of the foundation blocks for further study and appreciation of this most fascinating and excellent moment of man's creative history.

Here, each one reproduced in full color, are a hundred of the Museum's finest paintings, carefully chosen to offer a broad account of periods and styles. Eighty-five of the works are from European schools—Italian, Flemish, Dutch, German, Spanish, British—ranging in time from an Epiphany by Giotto to Picasso's portrait of Gertrude Stein. The rest are American paintings, beginning with canvases by Pratt, Copley, and Stuart, continuing with Sargent, Homer, and Eakins, and concluding with a...

Covering nearly seventy different herbs, this book details each plant’s specific role in several aspects of medieval society including cooking, healing, and pest control. Illustrated with 16th century prints which highlight the practical applications and symbolic significance of botanicals in the household as well as prints of the featured plants from a 15th century manuscript, this book provides a clear but thorough introduction to herbs and their diverse uses in medieval Europe.

With the exception of two family portraits by Charles Willson Peale and Alfred Jacob Miller, all of the pictures included in this exhibition are owned by Mr. and Mrs. J. William Middendorf, II. Selected from more than two hundred works, they range from the first mezzotint engraved in the Colonies to a powerful figure piece done in 1926 by the Provincetown painter Charles W. Hawthorne. The collection formed by Isabelle and Bill Middendorf is not a panoramic survey of American art of this period,...

Each piece of American sculpture in the Museum's collection is discussed in detail, and there is a concise biography of each of the sculptors. The more than 350 works represent all major American sculptors and schools from the early nineteenth century to the present day, making this a valuable survey in a field where little published information is available. Many of the biographies include characteristic or diverting excerpts from heretofore unpublished letters written to the Museum by the...

Throughout, there is still evidence of dependence on older cultures, on classical allusion for subject matter, on the European schools for style. The country and its artistic tradition were still young, and many artists felt the need to look at the older tradition for both encouragement and approval. But the American characteristics of optimism, pragmatism, and inventiveness keep recurring, and even in the work of the American artists who toward the end of the century made themselves almost...

This catalogue features daggers in numerous examples dating from the fourteenth to the eighteenth century and provides a history of not only the daggers in The Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection, but also the broader history of daggers in general. The illuminating text traces the dagger's development and mode of use throughout the time period while also differentiating it from concurrent development of swords.

Italian painting of the seventeenth century aroused little enthusiasm among Americans in the first half of the twentieth century. It is all the more gratifying that we have been able to assemble so representative a selection of drawings of the period from within our immediate area. To be sure, we have been fortunate as before in being able to borrow from collectors who began their buying as Europeans, but it is also evident that recently in this country museums and their patrons increasingly...

In the Middle Ages pictorial embroidery was considered one of the fine arts, and those who made pictures with needle and thread were often as highly skilled and highly valued as those who made pictures with brush and pigment. Franco-Flemish and Flemish pictorial embroideries of the first half of the fifteenth century are rare today, and a series as extensive and fascinating as the one analyzed here can hardly be equaled. The thirty-seven individual works have been known to scholars and...

New York is a relative newcomer among the world's centers of master drawings collections, and even today the breadth of the city's resources owes much to the continuing activity and the discerning eye of collectors whose initial enthusiasm was nourished abroad. This catalogue and its successors will demonstrate what progress has been made in assembling here representative examples of the work of the leading draughtsmen of the past five centuries.
